Kenmore Elite Fregirator

My refriger has ice maker and water dispenser which is locked now.
I don't know how to unlock it. I have a white Kenmore Side by Side and the water dispenser and ice maker are locked and I would like to know how to unlock it. There is only a lock button and no apparent unlock button.

    ice maker not putting water in ice tray

  • David Angel Sep 28, 2008

    Same issue. I also believe there isn't enough water flow because when it does work it makes very small cubes.

  • porkwop Sep 29, 2008

    moved into a new house. Came with kenmore side by side fridge model# 106.56562400, pressed the lock button to lock ice/water dispenser. Now it will not unlock. I read the owners manual and says to press and hold the unlock button. The problem is I don't have an unlock button. I even tried uplugging the fridge for a while but itremains locked. HELP!!!

No water coming from water dispenser.


It is possible the water control valve for that dispenser has failed and will not open. This happens a lot for those and the ice maker valves. All you need is the model number for your refrigerator and that will look like this for Kenmore. 213.564897 for example. and I will help you find the correct part number. Sea Breeze

Ice maker stoped working


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Ice and water stopped dispensing


some models of this refrig have a lcok out feature on the dispenser look for a padlock symbol on the dispenser console and make sure its unlocked. if it s not locked out you may have a broken switch bracket behind the console cover. when you press the levers listen very closely and you should hear a click noise letting you know the dispenser switch has activated. Let me know if you have any further questions thanks Peyton

Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice


When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.

New Kenmore Elite ice dispenser not working but water is


Should be no longer than 24hrs. Is the freezer good and cold.. has to reach a certain temp before icemaker activates. Might take little longer if you put a lot of warm things in freezer or refrig. when you made the change. Is there any water or ice in the icemaker itself? Water may not be getting to icemaker call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)
